(The Post Millennial) – A member of Antifa in Portland, Oregon, has been indicted on a felony charge of robbery in the third degree by a grand jury in Multnomah County for allegedly violently stealing journalist Andy Ngo’s phone on May 7, 2019.
Was just assaulted & had my phone stolen at @24hourfitness Hollywood Portland by someone I recognize at Antifa rallies. He first dumped liquid on me then stole my phone. Reporting to @PortlandPolice. I don’t know his identity & gym wouldn’t tell me. They got my phone back. pic.twitter.com/51GaBS7gZW

Footage from the incident shows John Colin Hacker snagging Ngo’s phone at a 24 Hour Fitness after dumping a liquid on Ngo. Staff members attempt to separate Hacker from Ngo.
As Hacker successfully grabs for Ngo’s phone a second time, he can be heard telling Ngo, “I will break your f*cking phone.”
Hacker had his gym membership for 24 Hour Fitness revoked after an investigation was carried out by the business into the incident.
An active arrest warrant has been issued for John Colin Hacker. He has yet to turn himself in at the time of publishing.
“I hope last week’s indictment of Mr Hacker signals a change in the
prosecutor’s office in Portland,” Ngo said, according to a press release. “For years, too many violent extremists falsely claiming to be fighting for ‘racial justice’
have gotten away with campaigns of terror and violence against journalists and citizens.”
